For the next couple of months, I will be changing this site all the time. You will see changes in layout, colors, maybe even functionality, hopefully for the better. Please bear with me. (Post suggestions for changes in this topic http://survivingantidepressants.org/index.php?/topic/163-suggestions-for-this-site/page__gopid__1078#entry1078.)

 

Eventually, as it grows, this site probably will move to a new host server, one that can handle more traffic faster at less cost. The more posts there are on this site, the higher it will show up on Google and the more new people will visit.

 

Please feel welcome, stretch out, and express yourself.

 

Your friendly administrator,

 

Surviving

 

Thank-you SO MUCH for this forum!

Hi,

Just one question.

How do I edit  posts now?

Welll, I really didn't know how much I favored the 'right-side' page content till it was gone. But at least the changes didn't make anything fall over except the 'welcome' page.  :)

Wah, the 'back to top' button (link) at the end of a page is gone. But I like the new posting window being right there after the last post and while I was composing  previous post, a little popper told me that someone else had just posted in the same topic and offered to let me read it. Now thas cool......

Please welcome Edted to our moderator team.

 

After many difficulties with going off antipsychotics, Ed's son, with Ed's help, is successfully tapering Abilify.

 

Ed shares the knowledge he and Cal have gained about tapering antipsychotics and dealing with withdrawal symptoms.

 

Thank you for adding your voice to this site, Ed.

Please welcome Petu to our moderating team.

 

Petu is recovering from going off Lexapro in 2010, after over 13 years of antidepressant use. She's become quite familiar with our Tapering section and has been cordially welcoming newbies on her own.

 

Thank you, Petu, for your helpfulness.

mammaP has graciously agreed to join our fine group of moderators.

 

After many life difficulties, medical problems, and a long history with psychiatric treatment, mammaP has been carefully tapering off Effexor.

 

She's been through so much, we're very grateful she's willing to contribute even more of her habitual kindness here. Welcome, mammaP!

Two announcements:

 

A small software update took place yesterday which should resolve the issues with posting links (the prior software ran the link and any text following together, making the link inoperable).

 

And, I am very happy to welcome bubble as our latest addition to our wonderful moderator team.

 

bubble joined last October and quickly added much detail about tapering and withdrawal to her natural common sense. She is fighting the good fight going off Lexapro and Xanax. Her Introduction is here http://survivingantidepressants.org/index.php?/topic/5020-bubble-tapering-of-lexapro-and-xanax/

 

Welcome, bubble!
